Disaster recovery protocols

Protecting your organization’s data in the event of a natural or man-made disaster is essential to ensuring that data retrieval occurs in a timely fashion with limited impacts for conducting business. We recommend that you have data recovery protocols in place at an offsite location. Many vendors have data hosted and archival environments with a variety of services to choose from.
